Petyr Piper was the Lord of Pinkmaiden and head of House Piper at the beginning of the civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons.[1]

History

In 105 AC, Lord Petyr swore his fealty to Rhaenyra Targaryen as the heir of King Viserys I Targaryen. By 129 AC, he had become old and grizzled, and pledged his swords to the blacks due to the oath he had made to Rhaenyra.[1]

At the Battle at the Red Fork, Lord Petyr and Lord Tristan Vance faced Lord Jason Lannister, who was killed by the squire Pate of Longleaf. Lord Petyr knighted him afterward, dubbing him Longleaf the Lionslayer.[2]

Lord Piper died in a battle at Acorn Hall against the invading westermen. According to Mushroom, his heart burst at the sight of his favorite grandson's head upon a spear. Petyr was succeeded by Lord Stanton Piper.[3][4]

Quotes by Petyr

I swore her my sword. I'm older now, but not so old that I've forgotten the words I said, and it happens I still have the sword.[1]

—Petyr, on his oath to Rhaenyra Targaryen
